Event of the Week: 16th – 22nd May
Got a taste for adventure? This week’s Culch.ie highlight is The Adventure Weekend at the RDS from Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd. Showcasing the best of Irish outdoorsy pursuits, the event will offering attendees the opportunity to try things like zip lining, zorbing, rage buggies and water walkers. Haven’t got a breeze what any of that is? Yep, neither had we. Read on.
Zip lining involves being harnessed to a zip wire and zipping through the air at speed, rage buggies are off-road racers a few steps up from what Alfalfa from The Little Rascals used to punt around in (and a good bit cooler, if we’re honest), water walkers are plastic balls that allow you to run around on water (inflatable Jesusballs, as we like to know ’em) and zorbing? Zorbing is this….
With a bunch of slightly more ‘regular’ stuff on offer too, like archery, karting, paintball, golf and laser clay pidgeon shooting, the line-up has us all revved up for a weekend of fun for a bargainous €15. All of the event is on-site here and just in case you think it’s only for gymbodies or people who know that jeans aren’t for sailing in, here’s a picture of Culch.ie’s Darren Byrne sailing in jeans with the gang from Go Sailing Dublin Bay at the press launch….
